The new tail lights remind me of the Mercedes Benz CLA tails

Similarly other people don't care that they could save $3k+/year by driving your 2003 ZHP.

Also recognize that you have the luxury of only needing to drive <5k miles per year (based on your stated gas expenses), which makes it a lot easier to run an older higher mileage car as your DD. The repairs and maintenance come a lot less frequently.

And yes there is a lot of irresponsible spending when it comes to cars. But there are also a lot of people who enjoy their new cars while simultaneously maxing out retirement, contributing generously to their taxable accounts, and paying down their mortgages. But I like all these people, because without them I'd have no car to buy used in 3-5 years.
Excellent points indeed. Honestly I never intended to keep my car this long, I too subscribe to the buying 3-5 years used category, unfortunately x35i reliability has kept me in my naturally aspirated ZHP.

Haha, its a 2-owner car build date 03/03/03, couldn't ask for a better build date on a 330i ZHP IMO. But no, even if I do get an i3, or something else I'll probably keep the ZHP forever. Thanks for offering to give her a good home though!

I agree about the x35i reliability being a concern, which is why it also took me forever to get rid of my own 2003 ZHP 6sp sedan! Nothing seemed worth upgrading for.

But then I test drove an e90 M3.

Now Carmagazine reports the next 540i as 375bhp.

The power output of the new 340i is anyone's guess until BMW release it, then of course like all BMWs it'll be underrated

Sounds like a great alternative! I need to keep that in mind!
